Savannah State College, on March 25, 1972, established The Major 
Richard R. Wright Award of Excellence whereby alumni, members of the 
community, and corporations are chosen by a jury appointed by the 
President to be honored for outstanding repute as leaders in their respec- 
tive fields of endeavor. Nominations for the honor are made by the 
alumni, the student body, and the faculty. The Award commemorates 
Major Richard R. Wright, the first President of Savannah State College. 

To qualify to receive this Award, an alumnus, a member of the com- 
munity, or a corporation must have worked constructively to change the 
pulse of the community for the better. The parties cited must have used 
innovative approaches in opening new avenues of awareness for the in- 
dividual and society as a whole. The honorees must have utilized 
scholarly means which address the needs of the public and attempt to 
improve the human condition. Recipients of this Award must be eclectic 
thinkers who have proven themselves able to transcend the false pride 
that tempers self-aggrandizement. 

The Major Richard R. Wright Award of Excellence will not be given 
injudiciously. Those parties that receive the Award will be noted for their 
expertise in social, educational, and civic arenas. 

The College will recognize recipients of the Major Richard R. Wright 
Award of Excellence at Commencement Convocations. 

Since the Board of Regents does not allow any of the state colleges to 
confer honorary degrees, this Award is given by Savannah State College 
in lieu of them.

SAMUEL LEE GRAVELY is that rara avis, a native of Richmond, 
Virginia, who has achieved notable success in the United States Navy. 
Graduated from the Midshipmen School, Columbia University, New 
York City, he has advanced in rank from a Commissioned Ensign 
in the United Stales Naval Reserve in December 1944, to his present 
position of Rear Admiral, having transferred to the United States 
Navy on August 16, 1955. 

Long recognized as an outstanding leader in the arena of naval 
operations and logistics, Rear Admiral Gravely has been awarded the 
Legion of Merit, the Bronze Star Medal, the Meritorious Service 
Medal, the Joint Services Commendation Medal, and the Navy Com- 
mendation Medal embellished with both the Bronze Star and the 
Combat "V." He is also authorized to wear the World War II Victory 
Medal and the Naval Reserve, American Campaign, the National

Expeditionary, the Vietnam Service, the China Service, the Viet- 
namese Campaign, and the Antarctica Service Medals. Rear Admiral 
Gravely has also been awarded the coveted Korean Presidential Unit 
Citation. 

Mr. President, I present to you the Honorable Samuel Lee Gravely, 
Rear Admiral, the United States Navy, who is to receive the Major 
Richard R. Wright Award of Excellence. 

President Jackson 

SAMUEL LEE GRAVELY, in recognition of your distinguished 
record as one of this country's finest naval scientists and laureate 
practitioners of all the truths which men hold inviolable, I now award 
you the Richard R. Wright Award of Excellence. 

Assistant Professor Elmore 

JULIAN C. HALLIGAN is that human being extraordinaire who is 
ever unselfishly working for the good of mankind. His credentials 
attest to his having proffered continuous service to the people of 
Savannah, Chatham County, and the State of Georgia in both edu- 
cational and religious spheres. Mr. Halligan is a graduate of Savan- 
nah's Benedictine Military Academy (Class of 1929) and is one of 
its most proud and staunch benefactors. He is a Past Grand Knight 
of the Knights of Columbus and a past president in three arenas of 
interest : the USO, the Gridiron Club of Savannah, and the Georgia 
School Boards Association. Mr. Halligan has been a member of the 
Savannah-Chatham County Board of Education since 1960 and has 
served as Vice-President and President of the Board of Education 
and chaired all of its major committees. He has served as Commis- 
sioner of Education for the State of Georgia in 1967, and on January 
1, 1971, he became President of the first elective Savannah-Chatham 
County School Board. 

Ever a champion of the people, Mr. Halligan is a recipient of the 
School Bell Award for outstanding service to the school children of 
Chatham County. He also currently serves as a member of the 
Georgia School Board's Legislative Committee, in addition to his 
serving as a member of the Board of Directors of the Diocesan 
Council of Catholic Men of Savannah and as President of the Hiber- 
nian Council of Savannah. 

Mr. President, I present to you the Honorable Julian C. Halligan, 
President of the Savannah-Chatham County Board of Education, and 
a man who has pondered the Socratic axiom, "Know thyself . . . ," 
to receive the Major Richard R. Wright Award of Excellence. 

President Jackson 

JULIAN C. HALLIGAN, in recognition of your dynamic and pivotal 
leadership, outstanding service to the people of Savannah and Chat- 
ham County, and gallant efforts undertaken to improve the produc- 
tivity of citizens from all walks of life, I am honored to award you 
the Major Richard R. Wright Award of Excellence. 

Assistant Professor Elmore 

ESTHER F. GARRISON, a native of Irwin County, Ocilla, Georgia, 
was educated in the public schools of Ocilla and at Savannah State 
College. She is a rare and catholic spirit whose inventive and inquisi- 
tive mind has led her into all corners and byways of the socio-civic 
arena. Since 1942, Mrs. Garrison has been a dynamic force for good 



in the Savannah community. She was one of the first Chatham 
Countians to sign the petition requesting that the Board of Public 
Education for the City of Savannah and the County of Chatham 
integrate the schools. Always socially conscious, Mrs. Garrison has 
served as Secretary of the Savannah Branch of the National Associa- 
tion for the Advancement of Colored People for twenty years, having 
voluntarily accepted that position in 1954, immediately after the 
Supreme Court handed down its historic decision in the Brown versus 
Board of Education Case. She is a ten-year veteran of the Savannah- 
Chatham County Board of Education of which she is currently both 
the Vice-President pro tempore and the senior member. 

Candid, productive, and intellectually tenacious, Mrs. Garrison 
has been cited by the Adult Education Branch of Chatham County, 
the Savannah State Chapter of the National Association for the 
Advancement of Colored People, the Prince Hall Masons, the Order 
of Eastern Star, and the Mutual Benevolent Society of Savannah. 

Mr. President, it is my great pleasure to present a champion of 
the Lumpenproleturiat, Mrs. Esther F. Garrison, Vice-President pro 
tempore of the Savannah-Chatham County Board of Education and 
Secretary to both the Savannah Branch Chapter of the National 
Association for the Advancement of Colored People and to the 
President of the International Longshoremen's Association, Local 
1414, to receive the Major Richard R. Wright Award of Excellence. 

President Jackson 

ESTHER F. GARRISON, in recognition of your championing the 
rights of the common man for more than thirty-two years, it is with 
heartfelt pride that I present you the Major Richard R. Wright 
Award of Excellence. 

Assistant Professor Elmore 

HOWARD JORDAN, JR., a native of Beaufort, South Carolina, is a 
beloved and respected educator and religious leader, who advanced 
in rank from President of Savannah State College in 1971 to his 
current position as Vice Chancellor for Services, Regents of the 
University System of Georgia, Atlanta, Georgia. 

Ever since his undergraduate days at both Georgia State College 
(now Savannah State College) and South Carolina State College, 
Howard Jordan, Jr., an architect of the novo ordo, has demonstrated 
a rare combination of talents: excellent perception as a scholar, keen 
perception as an intellectual connoisseur, clear vision of the public's 
educational needs, and a flair for effective administration. Dr. Jordan 
received the accoutrements which allowed him to deport himself 
judiciously at South Carolina State College, which awarded him the 
baccalaureate degree in history and political science, from Howard 
University, where he earned the master of arts degree, and at New 
York University, which conferred on him the Doctor of Education 
degree in educational psychology. While matriculating at New York 
University, Dr. Jordan was a student of the laureate psychologist, 
Dr. Charles E. Skinner. 

Dr. Jordan is a prolific public speaker and a distinguished vestry- 
man of the Episcopal Church. He holds memberships in Phi Delta 
Kappa, Kappa Delta Pi, and Alpha Kappa Mu Honor Societies and 
the American Psychological Association. Ever an active and dynamic 
personality, Dr. Jordan is a member of many outstanding committees, 
foremost of which are the Governor's Goals for Georgia Committee, 
the Governor's Commission to Study Prison Reform, the President's 
Advisory Committee on Supplementary Centers and Services, Title II, 
Elementary Education Act, and the Southern Regional Education 
Board's Commission on Equal Higher Education Opportunity. 

Mr. President, I present to you a man who espouses divergent 
honorable causes basic to the hearts of men, the Honorable Howard 
Jordan, Jr., Immediate Past President of Savannah State College and 
Vice Chancellor for Services, Regents of the University System of 
Georgia, to receive the Major Richard R. Wright Award of 
Excellence. 

President Jackson 

HOWARD JORDAN, JR., your commitment to the dignity of man 
has enriched American education and elevated the temper of our 
milieu and I am happy to award you and welcome you to the ranks 
of those distinguished peers who have been presented the Major 
Richard R. Wright Award of Excellence.

SAVANNAH STATE COLLEGE HYMN 

Let us give thanks and praise to Thee, 
To our Alma Mater, S.S.C. 
Thine honor, pride, and eminence, 
We raise in prayerful reverence. 

Guide us still from day to day, 
Be Thou mindful lest we lose our way; 
Help us know that life, short or long, 
Means unceasing ivork for weak and strong. 

REFRAIN 

Where Savannah meets the sea, 

Where grassy plains and palms abound, 

Where the flow'rs are gems of loveliness, 

There S.S.C. is found. 

We adore each beauteous scene and hall, 

Our all we pledge to Thee! 

In our hearts we"ll build a shrine for Thee. 

We hail Thee, S.S.C. 

— J. Randolph Fisher

ACADEMIC COSTUMES 

Modern academic dress has evolved from a type of apparel prescribed by English Medieval 
Universities to distinguish their schools from the lay person in dress at a time when everybody 
wore robes or gowns. When American colleges and universities desired to adopt some suitable 
system of academic apparel a half century ago it seemed best to agree on some definite system 
which all might follow. Accordingly, this attire has consisted of the cap, the gown, and the hood, 
the latter two now differing according to the degree the wearer has received. 

The modern cap, in academic dress has the same design for all degrees; black and square- 
shaped with a tassel hanging from the center. However, the color of the tassel usually differentiates 
the field of study for which the degree wao granted, the gold tassel being worn by doctors or by 
presidents of colleges and universities; but it may be added that the black tassel is correct for 
all degrees. 

The gown, unlike the cap, differs appreciably in design according to the degree conferred 
on the wearer. The gown for the bachelor's degree has pointed sleeves. It is designed to be worn 
closed. The gown for the master's degree, worn open or closed has an oblong sleeve, open at the 
wrist, like the others. The sleeve base hangs down in the traditional manner. The rear part 
of its oblong shape is square cut and the front part has an arc cut away. The doctor's gown, worn 
open or closed, has long sleeves faced with velvet; three bars of velvet are midway the sleeves. 
The trimmings of the doctor's gown may be black or the color associated with the field of study. 

The hood, while not an article of dress, is, however, the most distinctive feature of the aca- 
demic attire. It is a black, crow-shaped badge or adornment with an oval opening and worn down 
the back. It enables one to quickly determine not only the degree held by the wearer but also the 
college or university from which he is graduated. The colors lining the hood and the size and 
shape of the hood make this distinction. The bachelor's and master's hoods are three feet and 
three and a half feet in length, respectively; the doctor's hood is four feet in length and is made 
with a wide panel. Hoods may be worn for only those degrees actually held by the wearers. 

Members of the governing body of a college or university, and they only, whatever their 
degrees may be, are entitled to wear doctor's gowns (with black velvet), but their hoods may 
be only those of degrees actually held by the wearers or those especially prescribed for them 
by the institution. 

In some colleges and universities, it is customary for the president, chancellor, or chief officer 
to wear a costume similar to that worn by the head of a foreign university. 

The chief marshal may wear a specially designed costume approved by the institution. 

For all academic purposes, including trimmings of doctor's gowns, edging of hoods, and 
tassels of caps, the color associated with different subjects as prescribed by the revised American 
Intercollegiate Code is as follows: 

Agriculture Maise 

Arts, Letters, Humanities White 

Business Drab 

Economics Copper 

Education Light Blue 

Law Purple 

Library Science Lemon 

Music Pink 

Oratory — (Speech) Silver Gray 

Philosophy Dark Blue 

Physical Education Sage Green 

Science Golden Yellow 

Theology Scarlet 

At Savannah State College, the lining of the hood has an orange chevron on a blue back- 
ground to represent school colors. A faculty member wears the color of his alma mater.
